Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption’s
Christmas Raffle 2011
All proceeds go to support our rescued pets.

It's That Time of Year Again!
Time for the Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption Christmas Raffle!!!!

It's been a busy time for Sydney Pet Rescue this year with lots of rescues.

To help support our rescue efforts we are running our annual Christmas Raffle. This year we want to blitz our target and raise over $5000.00!!  We can't do it without your help, so any support you can give is greatly appreciated.

All proceeds raised from the raffle will go towards the rescue, rehabilitation, specialist care and the general up keep of our animals over the coming months.  With the breeding season right upon us, our vet bills sky rocket due to the number of animals being desexed, vaccinated and cared for. We hope that the money raised from the Christmas Raffle will help cover some of these expenses.

Tickets are $2 each, 3 for $5
Book of 10 tickets is $16

Please refer to the Christmas Raffle 2011 Page  for the results.

Sunday 23 October 2011  Camden 'Paws in the Park'

Valarie, myself and Mitchell attended the Camden 'Paws in the Park' today at Camden, where we raised some money for the doggies.
Val made some fantastic dog / cat treats and lovely Viennese shortbread biscuits, which we sold as 'buddy packs' (cookies for people, treats for your dog).
Mitchell was a great help as he set up the gazebo and tables and packed and unpacked the are useful!!!
I made my Hawaiian cupcakes, liver brownies and frittata's again
It was a really hot day, so we filled up 2 big plastic tubs of water, one for drinking, one for bathing, which all the dogs loved and were grateful for. Some of the dogs wouldn't get out of the tubs and had a great time lying in the water on such a hot day. We even had a few queue's for the bath !!!!

Despite the heat,  a great time was had by all and we raised a whopping $471.05 for the dogs in just 4 hrs !!!!!!!

Emma Jane & Nigel Run the Sun Run for Sydney Pet Rescue!
Saturday 5th February 2011

We managed it in 58 min 21 sec.  I am very pleased with myself as 4 weeks ago, I could not even jog for a minute! This is the first run that I have ever done so I did not know what to expect.  It was very hard especially in the heat, but I am so proud and will continue to train ready for the next one!
I chose Sydney Pet Rescue as we had a dog called Derek when we lived in England.  We got him from the Dogs' Trust there and we had him for 5 years.  He was a biter but we stuck by him and this reduced significantly over this time.  He was the most loving dog, and had so much character.
We had to take Derek back to the Dogs Trust before we moved over here in November.  He was 14 years old, and he would not have gone through customs with his biting history.  It was the hardest thing that I had to do, and it still hurts now.  So I wanted to give something back, which is why I chose your charity.

I am so proud to say that my target of $300 was exceeded and so far the money stands at $345!!

Hugest thanks for their great effort, particularly in the terrible heatwave - you two are just  awesome

The Cruelty Free Festival
7th November in Belmore Park, Sydney city.

 It was estimated that around 4,000 animal lovers attended. The festival was a long day it started at 10am and finished at 6pm.
It was a huge success, although a bit muddy!! All our business cards and flyers were taken by eager people, just learning about our rescue organisation and many many volunteer forms were filled out. The highlight was all the people who were keen to volunteer, we might also get some new foster carers, marketing, tshirt designers and transporters! Which is fantastic!

Foster carers, Darren, Kate and Anita attended with foster dogs Squid and Titan. The two little pups, had a great day socialising and eating vegan doggy food! To top off a fantastic day, we raised over $300 with donations and the sale of Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption Xmas cards

This was a great festival to attend and we got the SPRA message out to a lot of people.

Ps: A HUGE thanks to Kate and Darren - awesome awesome work!

Ps: Kate is going to stick some pix on facebook.

Close at  Tuesday, 5 October 2010

As an animal lover I am always looking for innovative ways to fund raise for animal charities.

Please help me raise funds for Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption.

For anyone who knows me, they understand what a huge animal lover I am. They also know I like to run.
Unfortunately I can't adopt every pet in need, so the next best thing is for me to raise funds and awareness for Sydney Pet Rescue and Adoption Inc.
I set myself a goal this year to run a half marathon, and I am targeting the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival in September 2010.

I can't think of a better way to combine both passions other than dedicating my training and running this year to raise funds and awareness for Sydney Pet Rescue and Adoption Inc.

You can view my progress and updates on my blog.

I'll also be running in the Bay run on the 1st of August as a warm up for the running festival. Stay tuned for details on this.

Remember all donations of $2 and over are tax deductibleand every donation makes a difference.

Waringah Council's Dogs Big Day Out
Sunday 29 August 2010,  10.30am - 2.30pm
Lionel Watts Oval, Blackbutts Rd, Frenchs Forest
Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption had a stall at the annual Dog's Big Day Out. We had a great day at the Dog's Big Day Out. Foster carers Kate and Darren brilliantly made tasty doggie cupcakes, slice and cookies to sell. Darren's dog, 'Biscuit', was one of our best salesmen and was there to welcome people with smiles and a wagging tail. The baked goods were a great hit with the crowd and we raised over $310, which is fantastic! Kate brought foster dog 'Dash' along, to represent all the rescued dogs we had saved and are going to save this year. Dash is still looking for his forever home, which is hard to believe because he is such an amazing boy. Thanks to everyone who supported us through donations and who came to visit us. We had heaps of fun and meet loads of new people, so it was a fantastic experience.

The Bunnings BBQ at Taren Point, went smoothly on Saturday and although we noticed a drop in customers since the new Bunnings Kirrawee store opened we still managed to raise over $890.00!!
A MASSIVE thank you to Phil who cooked all the snags on the BBQ, to Beth who ordered and cut up all of the snags as well as preparing the sandwiches for the hungry customers. Big thanks also to David H for being our wonderful cashier and also to Jane and Amber for their enthusiastic help throughout the day.

Thank you very much to everyone who helped with the BBQ. All your hard work is much appreciated. $890 covers the cost for us to rescue 42 pets from Death Row (cost of a micro-chip) so in context, you can see how important your fundraising efforts are to our animals.
Thank you again to Melissa, our hardworking Fundraising Co-ordinator and the BBQ team! You're all fantastic!

We had lots of people coming up to the stall to have a chat and pick up a flyer or brochure, but most of all the Doggie Cupcakes sold like hot cakes!! A HUGE thank you to Anita Chan for baking all the cupcakes and for coming up with the great idea. The delish flavours such as Carrot and Peanut Butter, Sardine, Broccoli and Beef and Broccoli and Chicken with mashed potato icing all went down a treat and we sold out by 1pm!!!
We also sold lots of raffle tickets and a few people took a guess at the Kibble guessing competition.
We made $309.00 from the cupcakes sales, raffle, kibble comp and donations.  Our donation bin was also full by the end of the day with heaps of Beniful Dog Food which the Purina tent was giving out. So lots of doggie food for the future foster doggies!

Fund-raiser BBQ
Saturday 3 January 2009  from 9am - 3pm
 at Bunnings Warehouse 71 Reserve Road, Artarmon

On Saturday 3rd January 2009 the Bunnings Fundraising BBQ went ahead at the Artarmon Warehouse and what a success it was!! We raised over $1200.00!!  This is a fantastic result, with the money going towards little Thomas the kitten's recent specialist vet treatment.

On Christmas Eve Thomas was raced to the hospital after he became very ill. He has been receiving specialist care at the Animal Referral Hospital, South Strathfield. After many tests it was revealed that he had a seriously bad side effect from a drug which he had previously been treated with, for a non serious condition. His treatment costs have reached $2,450.00. We know this is a lot of money, but we can't turn our backs on Thomas as he is trying so hard and the indications are that he is improving. You can read all about Thomas's journey here

A massive THANK YOU to David Halliburton, Marie Crilley, Jane Klinker, Grae Edwards, Jannette Wells, Sue Smith, Kasia Manton and Michelle & Erich Alber for giving up their time to help at the BBQ. Without their teamwork and support the BBQ could not have gone ahead!! Big Purrs from Thomas!!

Cruelty Free Living Festival
Sunday 2 November 2008 Belmore Park, Haymarket.

The day was highly successful. Our stall generated lots of interest and many volunteer forms and foster carer forms were handed out completed. Jet and Angel (Jenna's Pups) came down for a visit too and stayed at the stall for a while for people to meet them.
We ran a raffle for a Vegan Hamper which proved popular, selling tickets for a gold coin donation. The raffle was won by Grant Davis from Sutherland.
Special thanks to Sydney's Wildflower Nursery who kindly gave us some beautiful plants to decorate our stand. They were really bright and looked great.

A big thank you to Melissa for the organising. Thanks to Maria and David who manned the stall with Melissa and to all who helped.


A special thank you to Battery World Caringbah & Kirrawee for the use of their marquee.

All the staff contributed with a donation of pet food. Look how full the table was! We were thrilled with the support and compassion shown.

Little pups Bailey and Bosco made a star appearance and lapped up all the attention.
